There’s more evidence of the intense pressure on the NHS as Covid-19 infections surge across the UK.

NHS Trusts warned they faced an “extremely challenging” situation with almost as many patients in hospital as at the peak of the first wave of the pandemic in April.

London Ambulance Service said Boxing Day was one of its busiest days ever, with winter pressures compounded by coronavirus.

Doctors in Scotland have warned that services could be overwhelmed if the relaxing of rules over Christmas leads to a surge in cases.

Lyme Disease Is The First Epidemic Of Climate Change by Mary Beth Pfeiffer

Mary Beth Pfeiffer, author of Lyme: The First Epidemic of Climate Change, has been an award-winning investigative journalist for three decades. A reporter who has specialized in social justice, environmental and health issues, she is also author of Crazy in America: The Hidden Tragedy of Our Criminalized Mentally Ill. The book is a critically acclaimed look at treatment of the mentally ill in prisons and jails in the United States.

Pfeiffer’s reporting for the Poughkeepsie Journal drew national attention in 2001 when she documented the suicides of mentally ill inmates in round-the-clock solitary confinement. As a 2004-2005 Soros Justice Media Fellow, she found systemic abuse in lockups across the nation, where people with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia were subjected to psychologically torturous isolation. Her October 2004 article in the New York Times Magazine, about the suicide of a 21-year-old mentally ill woman in solitary confinement, became the genesis of Crazy in America.
